mentioned is identified with americans for tax reforms grover norquist who has gotten many republicans to promise they won't vote to raise taxes. south carolina senator lindsey graham is pushing back saying capping deductions would help generate revenue. the top republic on the senate budget committee explained graham's position. >> he is conditioning any tax increase on fixing these programs, social security and medicare, particularly in making sure that they are sound for the future. so that's lindsey's position. and he has talked about accepting revenue to accomplish that goal. >> republicans continue saying they don't want to increase tax rates arguing that will hurt job growth. democrats say the middle class could be spared from a tax increase now. >> however as we continue to negotiate a responsible path forward i remind everyone within the sound of my voice of one fact. this congress is where one vote away from avoiding the fiscal cliff for middle class families and small businesses. >> republicans point to a study done by the winston group which is a republic research firm whic
. >> brian: norquist is the bad guy. you should walk away from grover norquest. he said you have enough money on capitol hill and stop asking us . he's been a watch dog on our money so whether you are democrat or republican you should salute him. he warned you in the past that people who walked away from the no new taxes paid a price. >> remember the gang of 6. three of the people that you mentioned spent eight months in the room with democrats, pretending to negotiate tax increases for entitlement reform . after a while coburn had to admit they were offered nothing but tax increases. the president's budget is tax increases and president's negotiation is nothing but tax increases. >> gretchen: republicans need to hire good pr firms to get the message out. you will not go for tax increases unless the democrats go for cuts. >> brian: the president may not have control of his caucus. secret police files using as confetti in the macy's thanksgiving pallad. we will show share how it happened. >> steve: want to see where our economy is going. look back to 1937 and franklin roosevelt and stewart var
are attacking grover more gift. grover -- grover norquist. one side is going to win because it's united, highly aggressive and reckless. >> they said they would reform entitlements later -- >> come on ... martha: later? how many things have we said we are going to do later? it's so ridiculous it makes you want to jump over the fiscal cliff. in terms of raising the debt limit again. let me put this out there. the reason for that is they don't want to go through this exercise of talking about spending cuts. >> the other part of what i was going to say many democrats want to reform entitlements as long as it doesn't hurt beneficiaries. if you are going to talk to me about tax raising. we are talking about the bush clauses, the bush taxes which are supposed to end after 9 years because they knew there would be huge deficits after that. >> this is not even serious. everybody agrees taxes are going up. taxes are going up on rich people period. the real question is how are you going to pull back on spending? we have a debt larger than our economy because of spending, specifically medicare spending. th
americans signed onto the grover norquist pledge never to quote for a tax hike, closing tax loopholes. speaker boehner says i'm willing to break it and do the latter on deductions and exemptions and saxby chambliss the senator said it's time to ditch grover and his pledge, is it? >> all bets are off. i mean, listen, we're in a mess and all bets are off and we shouldn't be held to political organizations that are influencing our elections in terms of getting this mess taken care of, but you know, listen, i have a novel idea for the president. why doesn't he public size an itemized list of his spending cuts he's prepared to put on the table before asking american people to pay taxes. i mean, it's simple. when you have a credit card debt and you don't ask other people to pay for it or you don't borrow money to pay the interest on it, you make hard choices on your discretionary spending from a weekly basis or a monthly basis, this is just a business that's been run poorly and it's-- >> would you agree the president doesn't have a terribly good track record when it comes for proposals for
that was signed, that grover norquist orchestrated pledge that was signed by so many members to not raise taxes under any circumstances. did you sign that, and how do you feel about it now? >> oh, i signed it and i absolutely believe we don't have to raise taxes now. we can get this country spending under control through frgual management and good effective management of this out of control government but we've got to deal with the crisis we face. we have to deal with the political reality of the president's victory. so we'll wrestle with all of that as we go forward but i want to see and insist that this money be used to reduce the deficit if there is any revenue coming in. martha: i want to ask you this one more time. when you look at the statements by senator lindsey graham and senator sachs by chambliss who basically said i'm willing to revisit the tax pledge but only if we get real commensurate spending cuts, what do you think about that posture from them? >> well, lindsey's, he is a member of the budget committee which i'm ranking republican on. lindsey has said that before. this is not n
grover norquist and a bleng pledge. i don't believe that is a driving force for house republicans. they don't think it's good in the economy to race taxes on those who create jobs. >> president obama said that in 2010 right after the mid term beating the busheir raw tax cuts were set to expire and he extended them. a financial expert taking on the president's plan and what it may do for this country. >> it is uncertainty in the short term. a worse scenario long-term than going over the cliff would be continuing on this path more spending more redistribution. it has to be fixed. kicking the can down the road as the saying goes. i think even if we got a resolution which didn't suit the republicans for example you would probably see some up tick in the economy. what we are seeing now is economic leaththargy. how can they look 30 years down the line when our own government can't even look a couple weeks. >> republicans say there needs to be structural reform to the entitlements. nance is he pelosi is saying what does that mean? >> move the age down. >> perhaps. but they haven't really
